The Golf Academy at Old Greenwood has the finest golf learning center in California. To maintain the pristine condition of the grass and to allow you to learn without the normal driving range distractions, the facility is private for the exclusive use of our golf school members and guests.

At the heart of our training complex is a state-of-the-art learning center building equipped with flat screen TVs, lockers, bathrooms, a fully-staffed reception center and all the latest teaching technology.

Everything you need to improve has been incorporated into our private outdoor classroom. Two large all grass tees flank the building, for practicing your full swing shots. The five acre short game area is simply incredibly. You'll fine tune your putting, chipping, pitch shot and sand play on four different greens.

No course traffic. No distractions. No hassles. Just one place to refine every shot in the book.
